: : Russia actually allows men to have long hair? Last I heard they didn't allow it.
Perhaps you confused that with North Korea, or Turkmenistan...
: Many thanks for kind words :)
: Actually long hair on men is allowed in Russia.
: Some state-owned companies as well as many schools have rather strict dress codes and lists of "approved hairstyles" but in general nobody cares if a guy wears his hair long.
As also priests and monks of the Orthodox Church wear long hair (and beards!) I wonder whether male long hair among Russians is also perceived as a "priestly" or "religious" thing... even I, though I live in Germany, have been mistaken for an Orthodox priest recently! Must have been because of my Afghan pakol cap which remotely (!) might resemble the "kamilavkion" of Orthodox priests...
See you in Khyberspace!
